Testimonials
“As a growing startup, finding top-notch engineering talent at affordable rates is one of the biggest challenges. After being frustrated with unreliable local contractors in New York, we turned to Toptal. We worked closely with Michal in Poland for 5 months and were thrilled with the results. Michal was an outstanding engineer who communicated flawlessly and took control of our project in ways that far exceeded my expectations. I give Michal and Toptal my highest endorsement and will continue to use and recommend them to anyone looking for software engineering talent.”

The whole process was very smooth and we ended up with a new feature we couldn't have done without Toptal.”
